At a time of significant change in the NHS, Physician Associates (PAs) are playing an increasingly valuable role supporting doctors in the diagnosis and management of patients. Read more
At a time of significant change in the NHS, Physician Associates (PAs) are playing an increasingly valuable role supporting doctors in the diagnosis and management of patients. The PA is a relatively new role in the NHS, working alongside doctors in hospitals and GP surgeries, supporting the diagnosis and management of patients.

This innovative course provides students with the knowledge, professional and clinical skills to work as a PA. The integrated curriculum borrows from the successful undergraduate course at BSMS with augmentation through intensive discussion of clinical cases in small groups, and includes significant time in local clinical placements and simulation facilities.

KEY AREAS OF STUDY

• Integrated curriculum with longitudinal clinical placements in primary care throughout Year 1
• Bespoke anatomy delivered using e-learning packages for prosection and course-based learning
• Access to learning materials from the undergraduate medical course
• Simulated-based learning throughout the curriculum
• Clinical reasoning strategies for diagnosis in case-based learning
• Rotational attachments in local NHS trusts in clinical specialities throughout Year 2

COURSE STRUCTURE

Learning outcomes from the modules listed below are integrated so that students will learn about clinical medicine on a theoretical basis, practice relevant clinical skills in the classroom, followed by supervised practice on real patients in clinical attachments.

In order to achieve accredited PA status, students will be required to pass our examination, as well as the Physician Associate National Examinations. These take place in January, March and September each year.

Year One:

MDM151 Biomedical and Clinical Science for PA (30 credits)
MDM152 Case-based learning for PA (Foundation) (45 credits)
MDM153 Clinical Practice for PA (Foundation) (45 credits)

Year Two:

MDM154 Case-based learning for PA (45 credits)
MDM155 Clinical Practice for PA (Senior) (60 credits)
MDM156 Preparation for Practice (15 credits)

CAREER OPPORTUNITIES

Qualification with the PG Diploma in Physician Associate Studies and successful completion of the national examination will allow alumnae to work in a variety of healthcare settings including general medicine, paediatrics, and in community settings. Local trusts have already developed workforce plans for PA posts, including East Surrey Hospital, where PAs are well established.

Following graduation from the PA course, and subsequent completion of the Physician Associate National Examinations, PAs can expect starting salaries of Agenda for Change Band 7. Progression thereafter will be dependent on competency, attributes and opportunities to progress to higher pay scales.

As the PA role has been identified as a key emergent profession within the NHS, it is envisaged a large number of job vacancies will become available locally and nationally in the coming years.

It is recommended that the final taught module be Evidence-Based Practice; alternatively, students may take any module from those offered by the Universities of Brighton and Sussex, with the approval of the Course Leader.

The dissertation (100 credits) requires a 16-20,000 word research dissertation which includes literature review, background, methodology, project management and governance, ethics, methods, results and discussion chapters. In addition, students are required to undertake a viva on their project, identify an appropriate journal for publication of their work and produce an article in the correct format to submit.

Students on the programme experience lectures, large and small group discussion and individual tutorials. To ensure that students are able to put their learning into context, each is employed in a setting where research forms a significant part of their activity. Students are encouraged to bring work-based difficulties and experiences to the group work to enhance the relevance of the content to day-to-day clinical and research activity.

Staff provide direction within the lectures and seminars with much learner autonomy evident in the group work and assessment. Learning is supported further by the use of StudentCentral and the usual visual aids and handouts. Students are expected to support their learning by the use and critical appraisal of primary sources of information.

Group work on the statistical module gives hands-on experience of working with, analysing and reporting data on computers as well as interpretation of worked examples from published and/or local research. Workshops on research ethics and governance are provided to support students through regulatory processes effectively.

Learning beyond the classroom comprises scientific, clinical and research reading as well as practical development and application of research skills. Students are expected to develop further academic, transferable, communication skills through robust scientific writing, presentations and written reports. Engagement with a research project at a very early stage is mandatory to ensure that autonomy in the whole research process of project management and governance can be learnt.

Course structure

The course runs over one calendar year (starting in September), and is structured around five compulsory modules and three optional modules. Teaching consists of lectures, tutorials and laboratory work, while assessment involves exams, literature surveys and a laboratory-based research project.

A distinctive aspect of the course is the inclusion of a number of compulsory modules covering drug discovery, design and development, regulatory affairs and research methodology as well as biomedical sciences. Optional modules allow students to study a subject of personal interest in more depth. A major component of the course is a research project which enables students to undertake their own original research under the guidance and support of a tutor.

The Research Methods Workshop provides the background in research methodology required to complete the research project which is undertaken between May and July. There may be opportunities to complete this project with a local pharmaceutical company.

Areas of study

By the end of the course, you will have learned about how pharmacological interventions may lead to a cure or amelioration of different diseases; the scientific rationale underlying drug design and development; therapeutic regimes and the consequences of drug therapy; and how to apply your knowledge and skills to a specialised area of pharmacology.

This course will provide the theoretical knowledge and laboratory techniques useful for working in industry or for studying for a PhD.

Modules:

Research project
Current researach in Pharmacy and Pharmacology
General Pharmacology
Pharmacology and Drug Development
Research Methods
Drug Profiling
Regulatory Affairs

Options:
